I finally decided to use my jelly cabinet for its intended purpose.
I figured if I have a beautiful old jelly cabinet, why not happily display my freshly canned apple butter in it.
Do you remember me telling you that my girls and I picked about 95 lbs. of apples at a nearby apple orchard?
Why do I do things in such extremes?
I do have a wonderful Pampered Chef apple pealer corer slicer, but let me just tell you that this was a lot of work.
We peeled, cored, cut, weighed, and cooked for several days and made the most delicious crockpot apple butter.
I figured after this much work, the fruits of our labor should be displayed.
I also stacked up a small collection of vintage aprons that I have. If I am correct, several of these are beautiful hostess aprons.
There are also a few jars of fig preserves that my sweet mama made for me from her own fig tree.
My family loves homemade preserves and jellies. And, when fall comes around and it’s apple picking time, we are so eager to get our apple butter cooking. It doesn’t get much better than apple butter on whole wheat toast with real butter and a hot cup of Pumpkin Spice Coffee.
If you are interested in the crockpot apple butter recipe that I have, please let me know and I will post it on here for you. It is easy and it is scrumptious!
Blessings to you all!
